WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Feb. 11, 2021

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (handily) won Super Bowl LV and the 2020-21 NFL season has finished. But we still had plenty to talk about on our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment.

Why have the Houston Texans seemingly put their team operation in the hands of an underqualified former team chaplain? Are the Philadelphia Eagles asking for too much in a Carson Wentz trade? And besides Trevor Lawrence, who are the top quarterback prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft?

WISE Sports Radio MLB update: Feb. 1, 2021

Two big trades happened in sports over the weekend, both of which we discussed on my WISE Sports Radio segment. Mondays are usually baseball talk, but we began by talking about the Detroit Lions trading quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams and how I feel about it as a long-suffering Lions fan.

But to me, Alex Smith returning to play quarterback for the Washington Football Team against the Detroit Lions is the most intriguing storyline of Week 10.

WISE Sports Radio NFL segment: June 25, 2020

Now that Major League Baseball looks like it’ll play (unless COVID-19 has something to say about that), the “will they or won’t they” question turns to the other sports. And football isn’t shaking the coronavirus.

On WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed whether or not a contact sport in which distancing seems impossible can be played right now. Also, Jamal Adams wants the New York Jets to trade him. The Washington Redskins are feeling more pressure to change their name. And the Detroit Lions’ new boss is same as the old boss.
